It’s pretty hard to take the sting out of being rejected by a guy after a month or so of semi-serious dating, especially when the signs seemed to be indicating a reasonable likelihood of success.

I see my intimidating friends as strong, assertive women.These are things that I admire and wish I saw in myself. But sometimes I wonder if my quippy response is correct; is it really intimidation that keeps the men from my fabulous friends?“I’ll run up and down [at my local gym] and not a lot of women would do that,” she told Women’s Health.
